JooJoo Tablet PC Promised Soon

After Apple’s announcement of its tablet, the iPad, it is quite easy to lose sight of the fact that there are other tablets available for purchase. One of these is Fusion Garage’s JooJoo tablet.

The JooJoo tablet technically is not available yet, but it should be by the end of February. The CEO of Fusion Garage has said that preorders for the tablet have exceeded expectations and there has been an increase in inquiries since Apple’s iPad announcement.

The JooJoo tablet was announced in December 2009. It is 2.4 pounds, has a 12-inch screen and a 1366 by 768 display, 1GB of memory, and a 4GB Solid State Drive. It also has USB 2.0, Bluetooth support, built-in speakers, Wi-Fi, a Webcam, and a microphone. Its most interesting feature, in my opinion, is its color-tinted screen (I would be interested to see how this looks).

Unlike the iPad, the JooJoo does not use apps. Rather, it uses the Internet. It supports Flash and is supposed to play YouTube videos well. Unfortunately, it does have some significant shortcomings: users cannot save files to its hard drive (the hard drive is solely for the OS and cache data) and it does not have 3G support.

The JooJoo tablet is basically like having the Internet in your hands. The question is whether this will be enough for tablet buyers.
